Did the LTTE of Sri Lanka fund the films in Kollywood. Yes, says the Sri Lankan minister Abdul Rashid. The minister claimed in an interview to the Asian Tribune that the Tamil Tigers funded Rajnikanth films.
The Tigers ar reported to have sent dollars to their man in London who in turn funded the big budget Tamil films of Rajnikanth. The minister said that while Rajnikanth did not receive the money directly from the LTTE, he did get money that was sent by the Tigers.
The minister also alleged that Vaigo and S Ramdoss also received money from the tigers. Rajnikanth was not available for comment. Vaigo however rubbished the news report as baseless rumour.
